The ACLU is a non-partisan organization and for 97 years has fought to defend the rights enshrined in the Constitution. The ACLU is more than the primary litigator for civil liberties. The ACLU is about social action. The time is now.
ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero said:
“In his first 100 days, Donald Trump has accomplished only one thing that is remarkable – he’s awoken American democracy like never before and reminded us all that it’s ‘We the People’ who truly govern. …It is clear that resistance to his unconstitutional and un-American policies is everywhere. It is broad, deep, intersectional, breaking barriers across class, gender, race, and even political party lines….
President Trump can indeed take credit in his first 100 days for fomenting a large-scale revolt against his unconstitutional policies in the streets, in the courts, and in legislatures across the United States. America has not seen such broad-scale activism since the anti-Vietnam and civil rights demonstrations, and we have President Trump to thank for it. If sustained, this golden era of citizen activism may indeed be one of President Trump’s greatest legacies – albeit unwittingly.”
